Alex Ovechkin back on a line with Jay Beagle and Joey Crabb in practice

Well, so much for the lines the Capitals used late in Sunday’s win carrying over in to Monday’s practice. Coach Adam Oates went back to the combinations that he started the past two games with, including Alex Ovechkin on the left wing with Jay Beagle and Joey Crabb.

It’s an interesting move, considering that the lines they finished the game with, featuring Ovechkin with Nicklas Backstrom and Troy Brouwer, seemed to work rather well together.

Here’s what the lines and pairings look like this morning:

Ovechkin-Beagle-Crabb

Wolski-Backstrom-Brouwer

Chimera-Ribeiro-Ward

Hendricks-Perreault/Johansson-Fehr

Alzner-Green

Erskine-Carlson

Schultz-Kundratek

Poti-Hamrilk

Goal: Neuvirth, Holtby
